                                                                    Celebrating Cape Culture

Upon docking in the Cape Town harbour, ancient mariners would blast their horns to announce their arrival – a sound that could be heard as far as the Paarl mountains. This call signalled the incoming of ships, inviting farmers from surrounding areas to mount their horse carts to go collect and trade. This gathering of diverse artisans is what we channel through our destination today – a collection of flavours and a celebration of Cape cultures.Top of Form

Centuries ago, anyone with a desire to explore exotic flavours and experiences would have needed to wait for the seasonal return of the traders travelling the spice route.

Fortunately, these days a journey of discovery is right on your doorstep, with the modern day Spice Route in Paarl, a sensory feast for today’s connoisseurs of craftsmanship and authenticity

Every artisan invited to be part of the Spice Route Destination community is handpicked and different. From chocolate making and beer brewing, to wine tasting, distilling and a taste from all corners of the world, the shared goal is to bring a unique strength and art to the whole collective while supporting each other’s individual trade.
